The third step of increasing human energy is to increase the force accelerating the human mass:
“Of the three possible solutions of the main problem of increasing human energy, this is by far the most important to consider, not only because of its intrinsic significance, but also because of its intimate bearing on all the many elements and conditions which determine the movement of humanity.”
How do you increase the force that’s moving the human mass?
Simple: spend more energy and spend it towards the most efficient possible direction.
Our world is driven by machinery under a system created by our motive power. The mass of people is not moving chaotically but systematically, following an order like a clockwork. If we decrease our motive power we’ll, unintentionally, be imprisoned by the same system we alone have created.
That’s why increasing the motive power is key in increasing the human energy.
“Motive power means work. To increase the force accelerating human movement means, therefore, to perform more work.”
But how can one person increase their energy constantly?
Will there not be a point when the person cannot do more work?
Will there not be a point when doing more work becomes harmful, even unhealthy, to the person?
There is a secret: When someone applies effort so that, when coming into effect it will be in the direction of the collective human movement, the effort becomes most efficient and with less energy more is achieved.
This means that as more people do more work towards a mutual goal, as more is achieved with less effort resulting in increase of mutual energy.
Think of it like spinning a wheel. At first, for only a fragment of its potential speed you need a lot of effort and energy to even start moving the wheel. As you start moving the wheel and applying effort in the direction of its movement, as less effort it demands and as faster it keeps spinning. In the end, with less effort than it was demanded from you to move the wheel an inch, you spin it countless times faster.
The secret of energy is that it is eternal in the universe.
Your energy, no matter where you spend it, will forever stay and spread out if not directioned. That’s why it’s crucially important to focus your effort.
As you spend your energy towards one direction, with time this energy will accumulate and less effort and energy you’ll need to achieve a lot more. This is true globally and individually.
